Installing GD without X on FreeBSD 6.X

Installing GD library on FreeBSD 6.X, it also installs the X11. If you have updated ports, it tries to install X.Org 7.2 . Now I only use FreeBSD in a server environment, I have no use for the X.org client libraries. So the only thing I do is this:

# cd /usr/ports/graphics/gd
# make clean
# make install WITHOUT_X11=yes

  1. Just to update this post, one can also insert “WITHOUT_X11=yes” in /etc/make.conf file to make sure that X11 libraries are not used unless they are absolutely needed.
